It is getting close to your child’s birthday and you are stumped for an original party idea. One of the simplest solutions is to consider some of the many kids birthday cake ideas and develop the theme from there.
For example, if your child is asking for a backyard party, one of the coolest kids birthday cake ideas is to make their cake look like a giant hamburger or cheeseburger. This is easily done with two regular round cakes and a thin layer of ice cream molded to match. You can add a slice of “cheese” by rolling out some fondant into a large square, and some coconut colored pale green could serve as lettuce.
Another of the greatest kids birthday cake ideas is for the boy or girl who is a real fan of baseball or soccer. Instead of making a massive cake in the shape of a ball, why not make a large batch of cupcakes and decorate each one to look exactly like a baseball or soccer ball instead? They get to have dozens of miniature cakes instead of one big one, and this will be something that they won’t soon forget.
If your child is a big fan of the Dora the Explorer program, but you don’t want to get them a store-bought cake imprinted with Dora’s face, one of the most unique kids birthday cake ideas is to make a peanut butter monkey cake instead. This is a round cake coated in chocolate cereal and decorated with simple features to look exactly like a monkey’s face. It would work perfectly with the jungle safari theme so common to a Dora party or even with something like a Baby Einstein or zoo theme too.
If a child is really into sports, you can always shape a regular sheet cake into that of a sports jersey and then decorate it to match their favorite team. Remember to make the number on the jersey the same as the age of the child!
One of the most difficult birthdays to make a cake for is actually the first birthday. This is because so many people expect the child to be given “free reign” with the cake, but this means that nothing is left for the guests. Instead of wasting the cake, why not make a batch of baby-friendly applesauce cupcakes and decorate each one with the guest’s name. The baby can be given their own cupcake and this they can happily eat or wear as they desire! More 1st Birthday Cakes and Ideas
